Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place shredded potatoes in cheesecloth and wring out any excess moisture.

  • Mix potatoes, eggs, flour, onion, and salt together in a bowl.

  • Heat 1/2 cup oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until oil shimmers. Working in batches, drop spoonfuls of the potato mixture into the hot oil, pressing each down to form a pancake. Cook latkes until browned and crisp, 3 to 5 minutes per side; transfer to paper towels to drain.

  • Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a separate skillet over medium-high heat. Cook pears in hot oil and sprinkle 2 tablespoons brown sugar over pears. Cook pears until browned and sugar is melted, 3 to 5 minutes per side.

  • Place latkes on a serving platter. Top each latke with 1 round of goat cheese and a pear. Sprinkle brown sugar on the pears and drizzle sherry vinegar over the top.

This is a good base recipe. I made two changes. I used mashed potatoes instead of shredded to make the latke. I also left off the sherry vinegar. The potato really balances the sweetness of the pears and goat cheese. This dish was a big hit with my husband who added bacon. I will definitely make this again. Read More
